UPCOMING ANNUAL MEETING: The 155th Annual Meeting of First Congregational Church of Salt Lake City will be held on June 7, 2020. The purpose of the meeting will be the presentation and approval of the budget, receipt of reports from boards, moderator, and minister, and election of board members and officers for the coming year and other issues needing consideration by the membership of the church. It may be necessary to hold this meeting in an electronic format if current restrictions are still in place. Please watch for details as to how this meeting will be held.
Please note: Due to the health guidelines from the World Health Organization and our local government related to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis, our church council has decided that we need to suspend services and all church gatherings until further notice. We are saddened by this and realize that gathering together in worship is a joyful time for all of us, but we find ourselves in uncertain times. We feel it is in the best interest of our church community and greater community if we do not risk spreading this virus. We are planning to video a shortened church service each week and post it on our church Facebook page: www.facebook.com/FCCSLC. We also plan to announce joys and concerns, and you may send any joys or concerns to the church or Diane Forster Burke. We will reevaluate church service suspension at the beginning of May and update you as this situation unfolds.
In case you haven’t seen it ... Friendship Manor and First Congregational Church are mentioned in the 3rd paragraph of a Salt Lake Tribune news article: http://www.sltrib.com/news/2017/11/15/50-years-later-friendship-manor-remains-a-monument-to-how-faith-groups-can-work-together-to-serve-utahs-elderly/ (or click on the button below) 50 years later, Friendship Manor remains a monument to how faith groups can work together to serve Utah’s elderly. It was a 1961 chat between a Unitarian minister and a Westminster College professor that proved the genesis for Salt Lake City’s Friendship Manor retirement community.
